Summary

I obtained an MChem Chemistry from the University of Hull in 2013, I then acquired a PhD in Chemical Engineering from Aston University where I worked in the Energy and Bioproducts Research Institute.

After a brief stint in industry where I worked for British Steel, I returned to the University of Hull in 2018 as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Energy and Environment Institute.

In 2022 I became a Lecturer in Chemical Engineering.

My research interests are in:

Heterogeneous Catalysis

Nanomaterials

Green Chemistry and Sustainable Chemical Processes

Waste to Low Carbon Fuels

Waste to Materials for Environmental Protection and Carbon Capture
